Northern Lights - Southern Cross Album Tracklist

Northern Lights – Southern Cross is the sixth studio album by Canadian-American rock group The Band released in 1975. It was the first album to be recorded at their new California studio, Shangri-La and the first album of all-new material since 1971's Cahoots. All eight songs are credited as compositions of guitarist Robbie Robertson.

Northern Lights - Southern Cross was recorded using a 24-track console, allowing Garth Hudson to include multiple layers of keyboards on several tracks.

"Acadian Driftwood" was featured in a 1984 CBC-TV special titled Murray McLauchlan's Floating Over Canada. The only Band member to appear in the sequence was Levon Helm. In this presentation of the song, Levon, his wife Sandy Helm, and Murray McLauchlan depict the expulsion of Acadian citizens by British forces. My Morning Jacket covered "It Makes No Difference" for the 2007 Band tribute album Endless Highway: The Music of The Band. From Wikipedia
